There were many positive and dramatic changes within women's sports during Jane Fisk’s 35 years at Carnegie Mellon. The longtime athletics administrator, educator and coach retired in 1987 after wearing a variety of hats and impacting the lives of many students throughout her career. The 1970's and 1980's brought much growth to Carnegie Mellon women's programs in which Fisk played a huge factor – the implementation of Title IX legislation, the Presidents' Athletic Conference incorporated women's sports, women's sports transitioned from the AIAW to the NCAA and the UAA was formed. As a founding pioneer, trailblazing a path for women in athletics, Fisk received numerous commendations in her lifetime. She taught and coached a variety of sports ranging from softball, field hockey, volleyball, basketball, tennis and fencing.
